Subsequent modules address diseases and disorders by organ system: Pulmonary, Cardiovascular, Rheumatology, Renal, Gastrointestinal, Dermatology, Reproduction and Endocrine/Nutrition, followed by Neurology, Psychiatry and Hematology. The course concludes with the Oncology module in which students learn about the epidemiology, diagnosis, pathophysiology and treatment of oncologic diseases.
